done in about five more days

Recommended Posts

Ok --- so I stuck it out and finished the course. I have about five days left --- I have been on 80 mg a day for the last two months of a six month treatment. I am 5'6 and weigh 120 lbs so I assume I am taking a heavy dose. My skin is now perfect. No bumps anywhere...it's a weird place to be to not have to deal with acne. I am 36 years old so I feel like it's about time to have clear skin....everyone deserves clear skin. I guess I am a little worried that once I stop my accutane that my skin is going to flare up again. One dermatologist told me that women in their 30s have acne that is mostly hormone related so accutane only calms acne for a bit for older women. Anybody have any thoughts on this? I was at my wit's end when I started this medicine - it gave me clear skin (and made my cholesterol shoot through the roof and give me body aches). Clear skin is so nice to have -- I don't have to worry about painful cysts. Hope everyone out there who is taking accutane sticks with it - it's worth it.
